Print More, Waste Less -- Reduce Your Ink Waste

Careful attention to good operating practices and work flow scheduling, as well as ink reblending or recycling can decrease income losses associated with ink waste. This fact sheet presents an overview of the environmental concerns of ink waste and pollution prevention (P2) opportunities shops can use to reduce the amount and cost of waste ink coming from their processes.
